Day 1 of the rest of my life
Sunday, April 26, 2015
So the story goes...do good one day then bad the next. But for me it's like do good for 5 minutes then bad for the next 5 days. Darn viscous cycle of yo yo dieting. But I don't want to diet. I don't want to give up the foods I love. Could I eat healthier? Yes of course I can. And I will. But it will be baby steps as I get better because I have come a long way from binge eating and I refuse to go back there. I'm more mindful now but I could always use the tweaking.
See my issue is that I'm lazy. I'd rather take the easy way out. I'd rather have a bowl of cereal instead of a healthy breakfast. I'd rather open a box of hamburger helper for dinner than create it from scratch or have a meat/potato. It's easier. Plus it doesn't take away from my tv time. And that's where my issue lies. In the TV. I'd rather watch tv than workout. The TV is what keeps me from getting things done. It keeps me from playing with the boys, it keeps me from cooking healthy, it keeps me from working out. Tired of it.
I am so stuck in my ways. After work I go home and we do nothing because it's routine and I feel like there is no time for that. 3 hours home at night. That's plenty of time to work out, cook a decent meal, and play with the kids, go walk or to the park But it doesn't feel like there is time. Why? The TV!!!! Ugh. So many of my friends do things at night. I'm amazed at how much time they have and its because they don't watch tv.
So starting today. The TV is going off, I'm working out, I'm going to the gym, I'm making better meals, I'm going to the park, going to walk with the kids, going to be healthier and more energetic because that's what will give me a fuller life. Not the TV!!!!
